Aside from its namesake, there is not a more appropriate place than Greenpoint to have two huge environmental events on the very same day. A neighborhood victimized with a long history of environmental abuse, Greenpoint can be a beacon for environmental healing and awareness. Participate this weekend to promote a cleaner and healthier Greenpoint.
This Saturday’s (5/11/13) Go Green! Greenpoint Festival in McCarren Park from 11am-5pm, will feature ogranizations whose mission helps the environments, like eco-friendly, recycled, upcycled and organic products as well as services that promote Earth Day.
The day will also feature the 1st Brooklyn Science & Art Pop-Up Museum as well as a Greencycle Swap!
Saturday is also the 2nd Annual Riverkeeper Sweep in which over 1,000s volunteer to clean-up the shoreline. Three clean-up sites are in our own backyard. The Java St site is full, but you can still register for McCarren Park Clean-Up and Grand Ferry Park.
Aside from these events, here is a list of 10 Things to Do to Clean-Up Greenpoint.
Be Green, Greenpoint!
